The Barnegat Quakers will hold a Zoom presentation that includes Trinity Norwood on Friday, Aug. 13 at 7 p.m.
Norwood is a citizen of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Country in South Jersey. She serves her men and women as head coordinator for the Tribal Royalty software. As an advocate for indigenous peoples, Norwood performs to boost and teach about indigenous concerns by means of many mediums, such as artwork, film and literature.
The land now regarded as New Jersey has been property to the Lenape people for thousands of years. The elimination and compelled displacement of Indigenous communities by European colonizers resulted in a historic diaspora. Norwood will relate how these historic tribal communities thrived through record and what their tribal governments glimpse like.
As a author, she creates poetry and brief tales that target on her working experience of becoming a Lenape lady. Some of her parts have been revealed in the Voices poetry anthology selection and utilized for area art initiatives, this sort of as the Ghost Ship show at Race Road Pier. She has also appeared in community historic documentaries, including “Philadelphia: The Great Experiment.”
